A special event here in St. Louis this week......

Jim Doebler- Chairman of the MAF Committee, Steve Hokana, and John
The personal blessing in attending this event
is that all of these very accomplished men
had connections with the congregation
where we served at
Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Springfield, Virginia.
They all passed through the halls to worship with us,
teach and encourage us through the years.
This church is placed to minister to the military community
and we give thanks for all the leaders that have touched our lives.
Giving Glory to God for each of them.
